08:06 AM ET 10.24 | Neither Giants clubhouse man Mike Murphy nor Hunter Pence knew what became of it. The most famous and magical broken bat in franchise history had disappeared for a few hours -- only for everyone to react in horror when they discovered where it ended up: Sold, for $400, to a fan at the From the Clubhouse game-used merchandise stall behind Section 119 just an hour after the Giants' 9-0, pennant-clinching victory over the Cardinals Monday night. ... It turns out Pence and his Fryer might have a happy ending. Greg Marinec, a longtime account manager with the Giants, said one of his season-ticket holders left him a message Tuesday morning. "He was very excited," Marinec said. "He purchased the bat and said he wanted Hunter to have it."

They should sell it again after Pence gets it back.

I figured Buck and McCarver would pay a million dollars for that bat as much as they talked about it........They made it seem like that was the reason the Cards lost the game........Not the fact that they gave up 9 runs and scored 0......What a twosome of Idiocracy.......
